This will be the last opportunity I have to address the community before Tuesday’s election in which Ovid-Elsie Area Schools is asking voters to approve a zero mill bond extension. If approved, the current millage rate (7.8 mills) would be extended from 2035 to 2038.

My feeling is we need to 9build a new jail) but at what cost? People are attracted to our county for schools, not jails. Our current jail and administrative offices are in deplorable shape; no doubt.
